MASHED POETICS. A SHOW OF SPOKEN WORD MASHUP. This show was on January 27th at Café Deux Soleils on Commercial Drive. Jano performed a poem “Another Place” that was inspired by Tom Petty, Moloko, and others.

Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up.
Poets write new work based on a song from the album we choose and we have a cover band play all the songs with the poets playing with and/or in between the music.

This time around the late 80’s classic FULL MOON FEVER by Tom Petty is being performed with MUD CRUTCH stepping in as the tribute band.

Here is the list of poets and songs in order of performance.
